August 26 is “National Eat Dessert First” day. For the sheep at Spot On Farm, every moving day is an opportunity to start with the good stuff.
By definition, rotational grazing is a process whereby livestock are strategically moved to fresh pasture areas, to allow vegetation in previously grazed pastures to regenerate.
In Texas, in August, that means that our Dorpers are frequently on the move. We’re pretty fortunate that there’s a lot of grass this season, even if it’s pretty dry.
Our sheep graze on a lovely array of polycultures, but they always eat their favorite forage first. This means they’re pretty excited when it’s time to move to a new area.
